View of the Ka Band harness of a multispot payload
RF harness for Ka-band multiple beams payload:
- Very high level of complexity
- 30% of total payload mass
- Up to 20% of payload cost.
Changes are mandatory regarding WG manufacturing , control and support due to the size decrease in Ka band.
To evaluates or qualify new technologies or parts used in RF harness.
These new technologies or parts have to cope with many constraints
These new technologies or parts are in competition with very long heritage current ones.
Ka band RF harness achievements:
The KHARE activities are organized as follows:
